Abstract

Radio communication in the UHF range is degraded by signal fading causedCQmultiple reflection from adjacent buildings and surroundings. To improve performance and provide a quiet and clean signal in the presence of fading, a receiver is usually equipped with some form of diversity. The reflec- tor diversity antenna is a very low cost method of implementing a two branch switched diversity into a radio receiver.
